I had the opportunity to have a long chat to both Neil and Adrian (thanks guys) and the display was shown at both higher resolution (or get this) rotated (like an A4 sheet with the long axis verticle).

Both monitors don't even have to be at the same resolution, and you don't even have to replace your existing video card - just add an additional one. Adrian showed an example of how they've used DMA to improve display performance which when you see it speaks for itself (ultra-smooth sideway scrolling with the image rotated through 90 degrees). Windows could be dragged from one "screen" streight onto the other. I've had used the Matrox G-450 Twin head before and this is very similar to what Geminus acchieves - in short no minor success.

Nice one lads !
